    Born in Southern California and raised throughout the Golden State, Steve Archer grew up in a very musical family. His earliest musical experience came at the age of nine when he and his brothers began singing together for the sheer joy of it. "We would sing in my dad's church" he recalls, "and when I was thirteen, my brother, Tim and I entered the Teen Talent Search and won second place nationally. That success inspired us to form our own group, 'The Archer Brothers.' We were still in school, so it was a part-time effort." After graduation however, Steve was able to turn his full attention to his music career, and that he did! With the addition of Nancy Short (later replaced by their sister, Janice), they became known as "The Archers". They were one of the first ensembles to perform what was later to be known as contemporary Christian music. The group toured extensively, both in the United States and abroad, performing at a number of auspicious events, including one at the White House, for President and Mrs. Carter. Many television appearances followed, including the Jerry Lewis Telethon, the Easter Seal Telethon, a home-video series entitled America's Music, the Mike Douglas Show, and their own half-hour television show produced by, and aired on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. In 1980, The Archers participated in a project entitled "The Lord's Prayer," a musical written by Reba Rambo and Dony McGuire. Their performance earned the group a Grammy Award and an appearance on the Grammy telecast. The following year they were again invited to appear on the show, as their album "Spreadin' Like Wildfire" was nominated. After ten years and seven albums with The Archers, Steve embarked upon a solo career. In 1982 he released his first solo album, appropriately entitled "Solo." Steve started an active schedule of solo appearances " a tremendous way of expanding my musical base," he explains. Steve's second album, "Through His Eyes" established him as an important solo artist. The title tune jumped to #1 on the Contemporary Christian Music Charts. His first music video was produced to accompany the song. It proved to be popular and was in great demand by video shows around the country. In 1986, Steve released his third musical offering, "Action," a brilliant album produced by Skip Konte, Chris Christian, and Keith Thomas, featuring a duet with Solid Gold and Fifth Dimension star Marilyn McCoo. The song "Safe", quickly climbed the charts to #2 nationally and was voted by Contemporary Christian Music Magazine's year-end chart as the #4 song of 1986. Steve has been working, over the last two years, on a brand new CD entitled "Call it Grace" which was released in July 2005. Steve feels that this is a landmark recording, containing seven brand new songs and four remakes of Archers classics that are simply not available on CD... this will be a special treat for longtime Archer fans. "We've successfully created a fresh new dimension to the classic Steve Archer sound - due in part to the new and very diverse roster of writers, players and singers that we brought to the table this time around." states project producer Don Somerville. These artists include: Bill Champlin (Chicago), Carmen Grillo (Tower of Power), Michael Omartian, Bob Birch (Elton John), Chris Rodriguez and Chris Eaton. "He's singing better than ever and has been carrying an itinerary load of over 100 dates in a calendar year... without the strength of radio or a current project behind him until now. These numbers are sure to escalate once people get a taste of this record!"
